There will be three key components to this task:
A feedback sheet which includes clear and concise executive summary of the sample data (pitched for the client for which the report has been prepared)
An explanation of the interpretation of the data, with emphasis on communication strategies and critique of case specific considerations
A personal reflection based on learnings from the course, extending examples of positive and negative approaches to the dissemination of information in the context of body composition.
Detailed Task Description
The feedback sheet should be uploaded in a digital format. A unique body composition data set from a theoretical case needs to be selected by each student and the information must be synthesised with the learnings from lectures and tutorials. Cases will be either athlete or non-athlete cases.
Part One- Feedback Document:
Length guide: 1-3 A4 pages. Lay person guide: the report you would give to a client
Content and formatting should be appropriate for use by a health professional as a means of delivering information to a client. This executive summary may also make use of infographics, tables, or diagrams to support the detail being conveyed.
Students should provide an overview of the case including any goals the client may have, and salient points linking these to body composition. This should include lifestyle recommendations/considerations (exercise and dietary issues) drawn from the case study.
As per the rubric, marks will also be assigned for creativity and innovation in providing relevant information (for example, an infographic, use of graphs or charts, tables or a link to a video you might create (1 minute = 500 words) to assist with communication. The pitch of this document is for the client and as such, should provide a clear and concise summary of their body composition data that would be meaningful to the client.
Part Two- Case Critique:
Length guide: 3-5 A4 pages Lay person guide: explanation of how you would interpret the document with the client in your room
This part of the assessment must provide a thorough and explorative explanation of the theoretical case and its interpretation. Emphasis in the discussion must explore the communication strategies that should be employed in relation to the case selected. Students should also provide a thoughtful critique of the provision of feedback, including examples of the potential for both positive and negative outcomes in the delivery of this information as a clinician with application to the case presented.
Points of discussion to include in your report:
– Reliability/Validity and Population Norms: critique the scientific rationale, reliability, validity, and any assumptions of the body composition method used in this case using relevant literature or key textbooks. Include the impact on change data you may acquire in future with your client that is relevant to their clinical goals and context
– Calibration/standardisation procedures: describe calibration and standardisation procedures required for the assessment of anthropometry and the body composition method used in this case. This can include the reliability of the outcome measures
– Strengths/Weaknesses : identify, describe and discuss at least two strengths and two limitations of the body composition method used using literature or key textbooks relevant to your case.
– Critical Appraisal of Feedback provision & Communication strategies – including considerations for data interpretation in relation to the above-named points
– g. what would you do if there was no change in the client data in time or if the change was in the “wrong” direction
Part Three – Personal Reflection:
Length guide: 200 – 400 words. Lay person guide: What did you learn from this task. How to ensure positive/constructive approaches to feedback.
This part of the assessment must synthesise your learnings from the course, extending examples of positive and negative approaches to the dissemination of information in the context of body composition. You may wish to draw on information from collaborative organisations such as the National eating disorders collaboration: Helpful messages, Unhelpful messages (https://nedc.com.au/eating-disorders/prevention/communication/Links to an external site.)
Appropriate referencing must be included in this assessment when relevant using primary sources. Please limit the use of websites that are not referenced/guideline related and make use of peer reviewed journal articles that are credible and relevant.
Document below provides the case you will be working on. Numbered documents are the rubrics. Number of sources is up to you but use as much as needed. Only use it when it is necessary.
